'In the same way that movies, television, and radio emerged from the wreck of vaudeville...'

... so the Net is emerging as some weird, all-inclusive form of infotainment.

“Boffo box office” shall go the way of the journal that spawned the phrase, and in time the movie industry will collapse as television continues merging with the Net.

The real question is not whether its content will be stupid, prurient, and soul-killing, since that seems foreordained; it will be whether it can generate money.
